Incredible to Work With!

Paradise Strings were so incredible to work with! Angela was very quick to respond to my messages and very accommodating with our song selections. We had 3 musicians come play for our ceremony, and they did an amazing job! Angela and the other musicians are so talented. We truly could not be happier!

Beautiful Music and Accommodating

Angie was extremely helpful and accommodating. Even though we asked for custom songs last minute, Angie fulfilled our wishes. The musicians played beautifully and were one of the highlights of the wedding. Most definitely would recommend.
